From Weeknotes to Recently
I have not written a new weeknote since 2021 started. I started building up a backlog around new year, and I never caught up.
I had two intentions for weeknotes:
- To exercise my own writing skills, improving them through practice.
- To expose the work I do - so more folks can see what it is like to be a developer and civil servant.
I think this second point is where I was the least successful.
Finding something interesting from a week, that translates well to folks outside and keeps the right amount of confidence and adherance to the civil service code… is a tricky balance.
Notes on life outside work started to fill the space left there. But a personal blog was not what I had set out to do.
So plan B:
Fewer, irregular posts. But mostly when there is something interesting to be said about working as a developer or for government. Hopefully those will be both more interesting and offer better insight for the interested.
And for the writing practice, I’ll catch up on the book reviews.
